Last year, I insured my Tyler, DGT, Luke, Les Paul Standard, 5153, Boogie MK2, 3k JBL system, acoustic and more for 52 extra on my home insurance. This included use at gigs too. Most of that I got used.

5153 would be a great option for you as it goes too.

I'm not sure on prices over there, but the two amps I recommend for "do-it-all" amps in that price bracket are:

EVH 5150 III Mini (50w version)
Egnater Vengeance

Those both go for around $1100 new in the US, so with your currency being worth more, that SHOULD account for price differences, but that doesn't mean it will.

IMO, those are the two best amps in that price range, with the difference coming down to preference. I'm not a big fan of the JVM, though, FWIW. I think the Vengeance will be closer to what you want in this case, but if not, the 5153 should cover anything you dislike about the Vengeance.

If it was you dialing in the Egnater, then you're doing it wrong. If it was videos, then you obviously weren't watching videos of people showing you all that it can do. The Vengeance can easily do lower gain stuff like that. In fact, Sabbath is incredibly easy to nail on it, and I've got plenty of good Zeppelin sounds from it.

Although the 5153 is EVH, I believe it's made by Fender, although I don't what that would affect for you.

thomann might have the 5153 mini cheaper than shops in the UK. You'd need a uk kettle lead, though. EDIT: i haven't tried it, though, that's not a recommendation on my part.

I'd go for the 100 watt, as the shared controls on the first 2 channels would really bug me. It's not that heavy an amp. I use it for everything, from quiet cheesy duo gigs to loud rock gigs.

I'd really consider looking at the Hayden Mofo 100. Well within your budget and produces from fantastic jazz sounds. Can cope with heavy music too.

If you are after something Hiwatt style I (know they did the JP model) this guy Elektrik Amps has just started making custom built amps. Not a shop but a great amp maker. Might be worth checking him out

5153 50 watt rapes pretty much everything, however the Blackstar s1 200 is also very good. Its the only blackstar i've ever liked.

JVM is nice too, it hits the versatile button very well. Either one of those three will be great if you're going for brand new rather than used.
